hello, everybody. i'm beth troutman. it's time to take a look at the best videos of the day and the stories behind them, "right this minute." doctors are baffled by a baby girl's swollen cheek and when you hear what finally -- >> emerged from the swollen area. >> you will be just as shocked as her parents were. >> we're still in disbelief. it's crazy. >> mascot stage a mock fight. >> it quickly gets completely out of handp. >> why this epic battle on the court was the real crowd
pleaser. >> two women steal a poodle with an orange mohawk. now his owners is -- >> using pet amber >> how she is going to get her dog back and get back at the thieves. >> they think they got away with something that really made me mad. >> two people strip all the way down with pixels -- >> over the his and her naughty areas. >> why pixel pants are suddenly the hot holiday gifts. very cute little girl we're looking at is the nearly 7-month-old mya whitington. she looks happen. look at this picture. right away you notice her face is red, a little swollen. you won't believe thi what looked like a string emerged from the swollen area. mya's pediatrician plucked a two-inch long feather from her neck. >> like a bird's feather? >> a feather that looked like it fell out of your pillow. a feather they believe maybe she swallowed or inhaled.
they don't know when this happened because they said okay, we do have one down pillow but we hardly use it. mya's parents and emma and aaron and mya joining us right this minute. tell us how mya is doing now. >> she saw a doctor today and he was going to poke it, drain it, but there was nothing to drain. he said it will heal on its own. >> what was the moment like when you realized it was a deather? >> when the doctor pulled it out she was shocked. it's a feather. what do you mean a fetser? >> did you save the feather? >> got it here in the specimen jar. >> what were the things going through your mind when you spotted that? >> my wife was scared it was a spider bite. i figured it was a swollen lymph node. er thought the same thing and sent her back home. when we woke up it was one and a half times bigger and a pimple thing with it. s doctors poked it with a needle. a specialist came and nicked the scab and looks like it's starting to break up.
five minutes later we started seeing half inch string looking thing sticking out. what is that? her pediatrician showed up and what is that? her thinking is she inhaled it or swallowed it and got lodged in the throat and the body doing the stuff it does it rejected it and slowly started pushing it out the side of her neck. >> do the doctors have any explanation, like anything they've seen before? >> the specialist we seen today he says only one time he had seen something else similar to that but it wasn't a feather. >> hi. you did good. >> did mya appear irritated? >> you probably wouldn't have known there was something in her neck. only time she would cry is when she would see a nurse. she got poked eight or nine times. she was a happy normal baby. something we had noticed she had started pulling we didn't know if it was the signs of an ear infection or teething. >> learning this story later in life. >> if she's a trooper she's going to think that's serious street cred.
♪ crowd goes wild as the mascots from two rival high school basketball teams go at it. the high school male bull dog versus the manual high school ram. they planned on having a pretend fight. it quickly gets completely out of hand. >> why did it turn into something real? did their adrenaline get rushing? somebody put a random punch to the stuffed nose. >> no way you can have two teenage kids in mascot costumes with their friends and school mates cheering them on and have a play fight. >> i can pinpoint the moment when it started. watch the ram pull a jackie chan move on the other guy. >> i think you're right. the bull dog doesn't like that too much and the fur flies. these guys hit the floor. looks like finally somebody comes in to try to break these two up. but that wasn't the worst of it.
the fight continued with students after the game was over. that's where the real problems began. in case you were wondering, manual high school won 63-40. we know police officers see all kinds of weird things. this one is i have to say really funny. ♪ >> i don't know. is that a lawn mower? >> some dude was chilling on his lawn mower driving down the road. >> is this his way of getting around, driving drunk sfw. >> this man is elliott robert conrad iii, 56 years old. he was under the influence of something. he gets off, little slow, struggles to stay straight. >> what are you doing, man? >> [ inaudible ]. >> stretching out my john deere is off. >> as he's walking towards the
officer what's wrong, officer? >> do you get an lwi? lawn mowering while intoxicated. >> he got charged with first offense dui. >> driving under the influence is a broad blanket offense. doesn't matter if you're driving a lawn mower, driving a car. you're still driving. >> i wonder if he had the blades spinning, though. if he did there might be an interesting path on the side of the highway. >> look way up there in the tippy top of that tree. that's a kitten named mitten. and that kitten has been in the top of that tree for a week. >> cats get stuck in trees but that's high up. >> so high up, in fact, that the local animal shelter tried to rescue it, didn't have the right equipment. the local fire department came to help out. they also didn't have the right equipment to get that high. neighbors used a tarp so make a makeshift net hoping the cat might jump and land in the net.
even local tree climbers try to get up this tree and they failed. until local tree climber and horticulturist brady came to the rescue. he's got his harness and shim mying his way up the tree. mittens comes down almost towards brady, gets it by his neck, almost a heartbreaking ima image, we know he's doing a good thing. puts mittens in the bag and brings him down safely. >> has he released a statement? >> i will tell you who has. mitten's foster mom. >> brady is my hero. >> now they know the person to call. >> brady, local horticulturist. ♪ these aren't babies. >> these are adults who like to pretend that they are babies. >> we're going into the h hidde world of adult babies next. >> one report caught our

we have a bonus video for you. beth, what do you got? >> i'm so in love with this video. the ok ka pella group doing an n sync medley. singing songs like "here we go."

how did they get dallas in the first place? did they break into your truck? >> they did not. he was in the cab of my truck. the back window was vented. either open enough they were able to coax him out or they reached in and opened it further. >> do you have any news on dallas? >> my first tip came from craigslist. that's how i found the footage of these two women carrying him around. i'm doing what i can to generate more tips and help get him home. he will be found. we have photos. somebody will recognize them. >> how does it make you feel to see these women walking around with your dog? >> i was extremely an fwri. see them smiling and laughing and having a great time they think they got away with something it made me mad. >> we hope you find him. >> we want him home. that's all we care about. whatever it takes. you probably know by now that north korea recently successfully launched a
